Strand of cooperation : IPA

The Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) is based on partnerships with the EU candidate countries - the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Croatia, and Turkey - and potential candidate countries - Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, and Serbia. It supports administrative, social and economic reforms, as well as regional and cross-border co-operation. The IPA supports both cross-border co-operation between Member States and candidate / potential candidate countries on the one hand, and among the candidate / potential candidate countries themselves on the other.
